  1. Hi! Searching cephalotus images on internet I’ve found cephalotus error... If I’ve understood well (the page is written in German and I can’t speak it) it is a seedgrown plant of a German grower, Becker, that only produces non carnivorous plants... I think it is a strange and very nice clone, that has an unique characteristic.. so why isn’t it a registered cultivar? You can’t make mistakes in distinguish it from other clones:-) what do You think about cephalotus error? I think it would be a very interesting thing to sowing cephalotus error’s selfed pollinated seeds to see if the son plants are all cephalotus with pitchers or someone maintain the mother’s characteristics...
  2. Thanks a lot! I don’t thought that those plants could grow in clay and sand soil... and that they keep so much direct sunlight!!!
  3. Very well grown plant... what clone is it?
  4. Beautiful photos!!! Thanks a lot for writing wild plants growing conditions
  5. Hi!! How old are the seedlings? Very vigorous and nice looking as I have only a little space to grow carnivorous plants, I’ve never sowed nepenthes seeds... please, make some photos of their growing... I’m Very curious
  6. Very very interesting, thanks for sharing... do You know how many years are there sarracenias in Denmark? The plants that You have posted some photos a few days ago were from plants original from this population? Are there also pure sarracenia purpureas “wild”?
  7. Thanks a lot! I also think so... I would only know how big is in your growing condition the bigger pitcher of an unnamed clone... I’ve also seen that the same plant differ in size, colour and shape of pitchers in different growing conditions;-)
  8. Hi! I’ve found on eBay this auction... does anyone know this “clone” and its characteristics? https://www.ebay.it/itm/Cephalotus-Follicularis-Lasyba-Giant-HUGE-plant-dozens-of-growthpoints-/283365927353?nav=SEARCH It seems to me a very well grown plant very similar to typical form from carniflora... but I’m not an expert... another question: how big can become a typical form pitcher of a mature plant in excellent growing conditions?
  9. Hi Jeff!! Thanks a lot! I’ll do so;-)
  10. Wonderful plants... I love purpureas
  11. Hi Jeff, hi Pico, thanks a lot! my p. Giganteas have not problems, they are too big for be damnaged for fungus gnat larvae... I had a lot of sharides in other butterworth substrate (pure sphagnum moss), but I have used bacillus thurigiensis, and removed the single larvae.. at the moment no problems, the small seedlings grow well too

    Sundew dormancy

    Hi! This two plants don’t require dormancy... You can keep them indoor on a very bright windowswill or under artificial light with 2 cm of rain (or distilled) water.. Drosera Aliciae need warmer temperatures, Drosera capensis can survive light frosts... but it due e come back from roots the next year... I suggest You to keep them indoor, never under 10/7 degrees ;-)
  13. Thanks a lot, Rob!! At the moment there are a Lot of fungus gnat!! Strange thing!
  14. The first time it flowers to me
  15. Beautiful plants!!! Excellent job, Dimitar!!

  18. Hi! I’m not an expert in nepenthes, so wait for other people answers.. but maybe it is a nepenthes Miranda.. search “nepenthes miranda” on Google and say me what do You think.. it is a beautiful and strong plant;-)

    Sundew with no dew

    Hi! My Drosera capensis giant too is growing always outside, minimum -5 C... it is still green and alive, with a very very little dew due to the frost... the most leaves are without dew... my friend that lives in mountain sent me photos of his capensis... they die every winter and grow again in spring... but he told me that a year ago, when he had -11 C and all the water an the peat was an ice cube, they all died definitively;-)
  20. Thanks a lot for sharing these beautiful photos
